Visit Our Sacred Space
Winter's breath descends on Cook's Bay
and the light of the setting sun
reminds us that this special season
is a gift in itself -
a time to settle in,
a time to remember what is important,
and a time to consider the possibilities of the days ahead...
Come for "me" time in this sacred space. Rest, reflect and re-focus in an atmosphere of beauty, peace and solitude.
Corporate, staff and organization groups are welcome for weekday retreats of envisioning, reflection & planning.
Winter Solstice 2017 - A beautiful night to remember: a glowing fireplace, profound contemplation, a walk in the woods by moonlight, a meaningful journey through the labyrinth, and hot cider & finger foods shared together.
During the month of January, we celebrate Mary Ward, founder of the Loretto Sisters (IBVM, CJ), as the bold and courageous history maker who lived more 'outside the walls' than within, encouraging women to authenticity, dignity, strength, virture, compassion and joy.
"The true children of this company
shall accustom themselves to act,
not out of fear but soley from love,
´╗┐because they are called by God to a vocation of love."

Mary Ward

"We exist solely for this -
to be the place God has chosen for God's presence in the world. If we recognize, humbly but truly, the real value of our own self, we would see this as the sign of God in our being, the signature of God upon our being."
Thomas Merton

"The inspiration you seek
is already within you.
Be silent and listen."
Rumi


"The soul requires
inward restfulness
to attain its full height."
Mahatma Ghandi
